Downtown Missoula Master Plan

The new community vision for Downtown Missoula is complete. Following a full year of planning and community outreach and input, Missoula’s new Downtown Master Plan has been approved by the Missoula City Council as an amendment to the City’s Growth Policy and is available for public viewing on this website.  More than 3,000 individuals participated in developing the new vision for Downtown Missoula, written by the award-winning planning firm Dover, Kohl & Partners.

The new Downtown Master Plan was adopted and supported by multiple agencies and governing boards, including:

  • Downtown Business Improvement District

  • Missoula City Council

  • Missoula Consolidated Planning Board

  • Missoula County Commission

  • Missoula Downtown Association

  • Missoula Downtown Foundation

  • Missoula Parking Commission

  • Missoula Redevelopment Agency

  • Destination Missoula

  • Missoula Tourism BID

  • Missoula Economic Partnership

“The public outreach and engagement with this planning process has been incredible,” said Tim France, President of the Downtown Business Improvement District (BID) Board of Trustees. “Missoulians gave us their best ideas, and Dover, Kohl did a wonderful job of capturing those ideas and building out a new vision and strategy for the future of Downtown Missoula. Once we get through the adoption process, we can go back to focusing on implementation of the new plan. Our leadership is excited about having some new ideas and projects to improve the vibrancy of our city center.”
